Good night tonight. Parents out. 80s rock playing in the background. Me being a stereo-typically irresponsible teenager
eating testing this brownie recipe. Life is good.
See, I shared, OK?! And that’s the whole point of mug desserts, right? Who wants to make a whole pan of brownies when it’s only you (and maybe a Lucy) there for it? Personally, if I make brownies when there’s no one else around, I will eat them. Also, sometimes (gasp!) I don’t want to make a mess of the kitchen. So, if you feel like being a lazy loafer (like me) then this recipe is for you!
But I can not get over how amazing this is. I am at a loss for words (me, of all people!). So just eat it. It will speak for itself.
1 Tbs. mashed banana
1 Tbs. coconut butter
2 Tbs. carob powder
1 Tbs. water
1/2 Tbs. molasses
1/2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. cream of tartar
1/4 tsp. baking soda
In a mug, place banana and coconut butter and microwave for about 30 seconds. Mash together as well possible. Then add water, molasses, ACV, and vanilla and stir to combine. Add carob, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt. Stir well. Microwave about 1 minute or until fully cooked to your liking and let cool a minute before digging in. If you want a real treat, top with coconut milk ice cream!
I used a baby banana for this, which mashed is the same as one tablespoon. Random discovery of the day. Also, play around with the sweetener. 1/2 Tbs. was just right for me, but you might like more or less. Just taste and adjust to your taste. The cooking time will vary a lot depending on your microwave, so watch it. Enjoy!
